The two women were undergoing treatment at the Institute of Chest Diseases at the Government Medical College Hospital (MCH) here. The Kerala government itself has issued an advisory asking travelers to avoid visiting Kozhikode, Malappuram, Waynad and Kannur districts.

"There is no need for anxiety but precautions should be taken", Health Minister KK Shailaja said in Thiruvananthapuram on Friday.

Kozhikode District Collector U V Jose would file a report to the Kerala High Court on the situation in the district in the wake of Nipah virus, a source said. Two other outbreaks of the virus were reported in 2001 and 2007, respectively, in eastern state of West Bengal that shares its border with Bangladesh, claiming 50 lives.

In addition, the MoPH has called on all travelers from Kerala to visit the nearest health centre or hospital immediately if they have any fever symptoms within six weeks of reaching Qatar. Sixteen African green monkeys (AGMs) were injected a lethal dose of the virus and 12 of them were given m102.4 either 1,3 or 5 days after exposure and again after two days.

"We had indicated at the outset itself, there could be a possible second outbreak and the vulnerable are those who would have in come in contact with the affected". Earlier samples of cattle, goats, pigs, insect bats were also tested negative.

Eighteen positive cases of Nipah virus have been reported in Kerala since its outbreak in May, of which 16 have been fatal.

- A high-level meeting will be held in regard with the delayed interviews and examinations for the public service commission and a decision will be taken on how to proceed with it.

"Officials in the state health department have confirmed that the message being circulated among people regarding Nipah virus is false and was passed around to create panic", he said. As Nipah virus encephalitis can be transmitted from person to person, standard infection control practices and proper barrier nursing techniques are important in preventing hospital-acquired infections. "Around 300 doctors arriving in the state itself shows that the virus isn't a threat at all", he added. In this, it was confirmed that 11 persons did not have Nipah infection.
